And such as this, the list of advantages that come with video conferencing is endless. However, one needs to ensure that the setup for video conferencing is proper and that all the elements should be in place. But how do you know if the elements are in place and if everything is adequate or not? 

To plan and host an efficient video conference, you need to have an idea of all the elements. In this blog, we will tell you about all the elements that one should definitely know in order to host a successful video conference. So, without any delay, let’s get started with the blog, and see what elements it talks about. 


Tech Elements

We all know video conferencing is solely based on technology and requires an entire technical setup. Video conferencing lets people connect with each other with both audio and video elements. An online event platform captures both audio and video data of the participants, compresses them, transfers them, and decompresses them. It then translates both the audio and video for receiving users. 


To ensure that this transmission and interpretation of data is smooth, one needs to have an efficient set of hardware and software. Here are some elements that one should always have in place, and without them, one cannot expect a smooth execution of their video conference: 



The Internet is one of the most important elements that transmit data to other users. Hence, one should need to ensure that the internet speed is smooth and that the users are getting a seamless internet connection. For this, it is recommended to use a LAN cable instead of WiFi; it will provide internet at high speed and ensure all the attendees don’t feel glitches and delays in the audio and video transmission. 


2.Video Input:

As we mentioned, video conferencing involves video transmission, and all the parties involved should ensure that they have a well-working webcam or video camera connected to their devices. One cannot have a smooth experience if the video camera or the video part of the conference isn’t working well. Hence, always make sure that the video camera of the device users is using is in the best possible condition. 


3.Audio Input: The next element one should take into consideration is the audio element of the video conferencing setup. To make sure all the participants have a clear and smooth audio experience, they should join the conference with a good pair of headphones. It won’t only ensure a smooth transition of their voice, but it will also help the attendees listen to fellow attendees better. 


4.Video Output: To display the video transferred from one person to another, every participant needs a suitable device. Since several online event platforms are multi-device accessible, users can use mobile devices, laptops, desktops, tablets, etc. 


5.Audio Output: Similar to the video factor, one also needs an audio output for the audio to transmit from the speaker to other users. For that, one can use speakers, earphones, headphones, and built-in speakers in devices such as computers and laptops. 


Video Conferencing Software:

The most important and essential element of a video conferencing setup is video conferencing software. Such software enables the users to implement and execute their video conferencing planning and ideas to life. Talking of video conferencing software, there are several options one can choose from. Also, different online event platforms offer different tools and features to the users, which they can use as per their choice and requirements. 


Office Requirements

Now that we know what tech requirements one needs to keep into consideration while planning video conferencing, let’s talk about the different requirements one should have in mind. These requirements are generally overlooked by the organizers; however, these are the elements that make a significant difference in the execution of video conferencing. Let’s have a look at these requirements: 


1.Training: The first and the most important element that one should keep in mind while planning and executing a video conference is a training session that users should get. It will make it easier for the users to get through the video conference easily and effortlessly. 


2.Protocols: The next thing one should keep in mind is there should be some protocols that all the participants are required to follow. Having some rules and protocols would ensure that the video conference is hosted smoothly. It will also ensure that the discipline and decorum of the conference are well maintained throughout the sessions. 


3.Tech Support: Since it is a conference solely based on technology and its applications, tech support becomes important. We all know how emergencies come unannounced, and with technology, they can happen anytime. Also, most of your attendees might have a weak hand in technology; hence, as an organizer, one should always have someone for technical support throughout the session. 

Planning and hosting a video conference isn’t a challenge; it is a very simple process. However, the most basic and important requirement is to have all the elements in one place. The elements we have talked about in this blog guarantee a smooth and seamless experience for all the attendees. Apart from these elements, organizers only need to have a well-planned strategy and good planning. All these elements when come together ensure a sure-shot success and an unforgettable video conference experience.
